What’s the R-Value of Fiberglass Insulation?
Fiberglass batts offer an R-value between 3.1 and 3.4. Fiberglass offers similar performance to cellulose, mineral wool and open-cell spray foam, though it has a lower R-value than closed-cell spray foam.
Fiberglass insulation has many benefits, and installing insulation can:
- Make your home or building more comfortable year-round
- Reduce noises from outside your home or building and between rooms and levels inside
- Improve the performance of your HVAC equipment
- Contribute to a healthier environment

Types of Fiberglass Insulation We Install
At Rocket Insulation, we install fiberglass batt and blown-in insulation in walls, ceilings and floors in homes in Southampton, Great Neck and surrounding areas in Long Island, NY.
We proudly install Owens Corning and CertainTeed insulation.
Batt insulation is an excellent, affordable option and can be installed quickly without specialty tools. Fiberglass particles can be irritating to the skin, nose and mouth, however, and it’s recommended that a mask be worn during installation.
Often referred to as blown-in insulation — based on its method of installation — loose-fill fiberglass insulation is a collection of loose fibers or nodules that are blown into the wall cavity or attic.
Blown-in fiberglass insulation requires specific industry-designed equipment that agitates, expands and distributes the fiberglass to its desired depth. Loose-fill fiberglass insulation is recognized for its continuous coverage, flexibility and ability to fit into tight or low crevices.

Frequently Asked Questions About Fiberglass Insulation
What happens if you touch fiberglass insulation?
Fiberglass particles can embed into your skin if you touch fiberglass insulation. Afterward, your skin will be quite itchy. After a few showers, however, most of the particles will be gone and the irritation will subside.
Is fiberglass insulation dangerous?
Fiberglass insulation can irritate the eyes, nose, throat and lungs, so it’s best to wear a respirator while installing or handling it. It’s reliably safe otherwise.
How do I choose what type of fiberglass insulation to install?
If you have evenly spaced studs, joists or rafters that need to be insulated, fiberglass batts are probably best. For finished walls, floors or irregularly shaped areas, blown-in fiberglass may be better.
Where are the best places to install fiberglass?
Fiberglass batts are ideal for installation between joists, wall studs and other framing members. Fiberglass provides excellent insulation for walls, ceilings, floors and more.
